About Lucinda Reddyhoff

Nick and I work together producing Design for both print and web as well as an array of design work. Nick is also a commercial illustrator, with his work being published in advertising and editorial worldwide. We lovingly designed, renovated and furnished The Chapel Thornham. We have furnished it as a home from home and continually upkeep and renew when necessary to keep it lovely. I am personally involved in the housekeeping changeover to ensure a high standard of cleaning and presentation for our guests. We love the Chapel Thornham - it has a lovely atmosphere and has many happy memories for us and all the families who stay there.

Lucinda Reddyhoff purchased this house in 2007

Why Lucinda Reddyhoff chose Thornham

We lived next door and have always admired the quirky and pretty Chapel. We would have loved to use it as our studio but couldn't afford to do that, so we renovated it, made it beautiful and a lovely holiday home to rent out to pay for itself. It is ideally situated in the heart of the village, we are lucky to have award winning bar/restaurant/pubs. The Village Harbour (great for crabbing) and lovely walks are a stroll away. The Beach is a 20 minute walk along the coastal path but this makes it less busy in the height of summer than the other beaches.

Thornham is a great central base to explore all of the local tourist attractions.

What makes this house unique

A unique experience, comfortable, quirky and different!

Quaint Town Modern Property

  • 4 of 5

Clean, well furnished, well-equipped space.The common space was comfortable the bathrooms modern and beds comfortable with very nice linens. The bedrooms were a little cramped. Steps to second level are a little steep. Nice restaurants nearby. If the opportunity presented itself we would stay again. Hostess was helpful and responsive to inquiries.
